The single, the first song to taken from their forthcoming alum ’12 Memories’, will be released on September 29. Written about being trapped in a brutal relationship, it is their first release since 2001’s ‘The Invisible Band’.

As previously reported on NME.COM Travis gave fans four glimpses of their ’12 Memories’ at the Festival International de Benicassim (August 9), playing ‘Beautiful Occupation’, ‘Re-Offender’, ‘How Many Hearts’ and ‘Peace The Fuck Out’.
